40. if the money is handy I give it, and don't think about how they'll spend it.

Probably I benefit more from giving than the receiver.

When I acknowledge their humanity by sharing a little
bit of what I have, it fills up my own heart, and that's
my private motivation.

When I give I hope that for a second they feel some
dignity, or kindness or love, and for a moment they
don't feel any shame. That's something, even if it
goes towards drugs or alcohol. A moment can make
a whole lifetime more meaningful.
